A joint venture between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, LANDSAT, provides over 40 years' worth of remote sensing data and images of planet Earth taken from space. Changes in agriculture, geology, and urbanization can be viewed through Landsat imagery. View the growth of cities or the impact of natural and man-made disasters--Chernobyl, wildfires, hurricanes, drought, volcanoes, floods, and more. Images are available for download in high-definition.

In addition to data, the website provides tools for manipulating the data, information about the various LANDSAT missions. LANDSAT data downloaded from USGS EROS is unrestricted and can be used at no cost. Give credit, however, when citing, copying, or reprinting; see the Data Citation page for details.
